    Can you imagine feeding your loved one's dead body to a bunch of vultures like that?

    I understand we all become worm food but the fact that they chop up the dead bodies so the vultures can eat it faster is what bothers me.

    This! Not exactly sure why the need to carve off the skin first. But either way all that's left if the bones. Any word on what they do with those?

    I don't think there's anything sick about it. Kind of beautiful and poignant, in a way. Better than spending thousands of dollars on a funeral and casket and then rotting away in the ground. THERE'S GOOD MEAT ON 'DEM BONES!

    When I'm gone, do whatever the fuck you want me - burn me, grind me into dust, toss my corpse into a gay bar and let them have at it, stuff me into a canon, fire it at a brick wall and try to pass it off as a lost Jackson Pollock painting... I don't give a fuck.

    I think I'd like to be fed to polar bears as a bit of a mea culpa for all the global warming I've contributed to.

    Damn I miss The Far Side. The only panel cartoon that made me laugh out loud like I just did seeing this one again.
